Hey Lovelies, 

Sunday nights are all about snuggling up in our house. I feel like ever since I Was little, even in the height of summer, everyone in my family gathers and just chills out. We used to be made to watch Where The Heart Is or Heartbeat when we were younger, with some cheese on toast, before heading up to bed.

As we got older this changed to being food and drinks, we could make ourselves. Including hot chocolate. Gathering our favourite powders and recipes, I would head into the kitchen and make the whole family a big batch to enjoy. Yesterday morning I did just that again and it made me want to share with you all my recipe before the evening sets in.

Get ready to get cosy, with this recipe:


  • 2/3 Teaspoons of Your Favourite Hot Chocolate Powder (We Use Sainsbury’s)
  • 300ml of Your Chosen Milk
  • 3 or 4 Chunks of Your Favourite Chocolate (We Use Aldi’s or Cadbury’s)
  • Whipped Cream (Optional)
  • Marshmallows (Optional)
  • Chocolate Swirls (Optional)


  • Small Saucepan
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Your Favourite Mug
  • Long Handled Spoon
  • Grater (Optional)


  1. Gather all your ingredients and measure them out.
  2. Pour the milk into the saucepan.
  3. Add in the chocolate powder with the teaspoons and stir using the wooden spoon mixing in the powder, as much as you can. 
  4. Place the saucepan onto your hob and turn it to a medium/high setting. Make sure to continuously stir to get all the powder to dissolve. 
  5. Continue to stir until steam begins to rise from the milk. Once this has happened turn off the hob but keep it sat on the heat. 
  6. Add in your chosen amount of chocolate chunks and stir until melted into the milk. 
  7. Remove from the hob and pour into your chosen mug. 
  8. Shake up your can of whipped cream if using and swirl on top. Scatter a few marshmallows on top, then add the chocolate swirls. If you don’t have any chocolate swirls, use the grater to create your own from the leftover chocolate bar used in the recipe earlier. 
  9. Pop in the spoon and serve. 
It is so simple to make lovelies and can be done in five minutes or less. My brother always asks for one and I have been known to even make it for strangers and extended family members when asked. I don’t hold any responsibility though for the sugar high that comes from the younger members when they enjoy it.

Make sure to hare your creations with me if you make the recipe lovelies, as I would love to see them.
